Claytor Enjoys Clemson's Junior Day

Georgia standout offensive lineman Nick Claytor visited Clemson over the weekend and came away very impressed with Clemson and Death Valley. CUTigers.com has all the details about Claytor's visit in another extensive recruiting update.

6-6, 290 pound offensive line prospect Nick Claytor attended Junior Day at Clemson on Saturday. Afterwards, CUTigers.com caught up with talented lineman to get the latest on his top schools.

"It was great," said Claytor. "They have great facilities. This was my first time in Death Valley. It is immense. You can see how huge it is. To play on that kind of stage would be impressive.

"I enjoyed getting to meet the staff and coaches. I got to meet the people that I would spend a lot of time with if I decided to go to Clemson."

The Gainesville, Ga. standout was able to speak with several coaches during the visit. "Yeah I spoke a lot with coach West. He is my recruiter. I also got to talk with coach Bowden and coach Scott. They told me they like my grades and my academic situation. They said they are definitely interest in me."

The Tigers have not offered the Georgia standout, but that could change later this summer. "They did not offer. They said they want me to come to camp before they offer. I will go to camp there this summer. I am going to the Nike camp at Clemson, and I plan to go to the one day camp this summer.

"My only official offer right now is Georgia Tech. But I do have verbal offers from Florida and Auburn."

When asked about his current favorites, Claytor responded, "Georgia Tech is at the top. Then I would say Florida, Auburn, Georgia, Clemson and Ohio State."

The star lineman plans to take at least one more unofficial visit later this spring. "I am going to go down to Florida for a visit during my spring break," he said.

What will the Georgia standout consider when selecting a college? "Academics will be important," Claytor responded. "I will look at the depth chart for the future. I don't have to play right away but I would like to get time my sophomore and junior years especially. I will look at how much the team wants me. Nobody wants to be the second option."
